I have used Waldryl, which is the Walgreen's version of Benedryl. It worked great and wasn't as expensive as the name brand.

I'm in the thick of potting training my two year old, who seems a tad reluctant, but interested in learning nonetheless. I wonder if Walgreens has their own brand of training pants or items like that. I've sampled store brands before. Some work well and some are just terrible. I'm always willing to try out store brands because they do tend to be cheaper.
Also, being a fan of Excedrin Migraine, I've tried to by the store brand because the name brand is pricey. I've tried one other store brand - it was cheaper and just as effective. I would think Walgreens would have something comparable and would love to eventually check it out!


I love Walgreen brand products. My favourite is their Super Pro-Biotic, it costs far less than all the other probiotics out there, and has far more of the active cultures in it as well. Been using it for over a year and it's made a huge difference in the way I feel. I think I'd like to try that sunblock--I have very pale skin that seems to burn just going from my house to my car!


I'm always dubious about the store brand until I try it and then more than half the time I like it just as well. Now I'm dying to try the sunscreen. I just can NOT believe how expensive brand name sunscreen is and I'm honeymooning at the beach and will definitely need to stock up!


I'd like to try the Walgreens ibuprofen.

Woops, I just re-read my comment and I definitely meant potty training, not potting training lol!


I'd like to try the suncreen. I have some of the predispositions for skin cancer (blonde hair, fair skin, blue eyes) and have gotten much more serious in the past couple of years about wearing sunscreen. Thanks for the opportunity!

I am a little hesitant to go with the store brands on some things too, but I've also found the Target brand to be great, and I love how they give you direct comparisons to the name brands on the labels. I've used their versions of Eucerin, contact lens cleaner, Softsoap milk and honey soap and even Tampax tampons and found all to be no different from the much more expensive brand names. I use a lot of their store brand products and have always been satisfied. Glad to hear Walgreen's is also good.


Good to know about the sunscreen. I too purchase the uber-expensive neutrogena. I will give the far less costly Walgreens brand a try. Thanks for the info.

As my husband just recently retired, I've found myself buying more and more store brands to make our dollar stretch a little farther. Much to my delight I have almost always been just as satisfied.
I see Waldryl in my future!


I definitely would like to try the Dry Touch Sheer Suncreen. Gardening season has started and the kids and I will be spending lots of time outside. I haven't been as diligent in the past about the sunblock and intend to fix that.

I would love to try the Walgreens brand diapers. I already love the Walgreens brand bandaids. Would love to try something new.

Id try the sunscreen. I just read the expiration date on ours and realized it was earlier this year. Band aids would be good too since my 3 year old is in the "must have a band aid for everything" mode.


I would be interested in trying their sunscreen. It's that time of year and sunscreen can be so "iffy", not to mention very expensive. So trying store brands to save money & see if they work is the only way to know.


I use the Walgreens allergy meds for my kids.


I love their version of Zyrtek. I'm looking at that sunscreen too though.


I would love to try the sunscreen. With a red-headed child we go through a LOT of sunscreen at our house.


Not only do I get my monthly prescription from Walgreens, but I've used their bandaids, ibuprofin, anti-itch creams, and, yes, even recently had occasion to need their athlete's foot cream (yuck!)--all work great! $100 from Walgreens would be great--I'd like to get some of their sunscreen!





I will definitely try the sunscreen. If Walgreen's has their own version of Miralax, I would buy that for my daughter who is taking it on a regular basis. I would love to save money on that!

Headless Mom

I shop at Walgreens all the time and usually by the Wal-brand anyway, but I should try the sunscreen the next time I need some!

Running Betty

I would use Walgreens Sunscreen and Bandaids. Also their Facewash that is supposed to be like Clean & Clear Blackhead scrub is great! ALl 4 of us use it.

Their sunblock is good. I'm a big fan of their Wal-Dryl and their brand of Aleve. Buy my tissues and tape, powder and soap there.

I will add you to my prayer list, if that's ok, for the melanoma?

Gina @ The Crave to Save

I buy store brands quite often to save money! I find that in most cases the products are just as good if not better than the national brands! We could really use some new items to stock our medecine cabinet, so we would probably put this towards ibuprofin, first aid items, baby pain reliever, and cold meds. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

I love being store brands, especially if they actually work as well as the name brands. At walgreens I buy their version of tylenol arthritis medication. It is the only thing that stops my pain. Thanks for the great giveaway!
